CIRCLE 



Presented by the Senior Class of 
Abbot Academy, Andover, Massachusetts 



DEDICATED 

to 

MISS ADELE D. BOCKSTEDT 

Because she entered Abbot with our class and 
as our advisor has never been too busy to give us 
clear advice and good counsel; because of her 
lively spirit and ever-readiness to please us and 
encourage us; because of the sympathy and 
understanding with which she has treated all 
our problems, we, the Class of 1953, proudly 
dedicate this book to Miss Bockstedt. 




MISS HEARSEY 

Miss Hearsey is an important part of our life 
at Abbot. From our "new-girl" days when we 
first hear her inspiring prayers and talks in 
chapel, to the time when we learn that she is the 
best person to help solve our problems, we love 
and admire her for her devotion and sincere 
interest in every one of us. Through poetry 
classes, Sunday suppers at Sunset and those 
wonderful days at Intervale, we know her as the 
special friend of the seniors. 

Counsellor, guide and, above all, our friend - 
this is why we sing, 

'Miss Hearsey, to you, our hearts belong."

Prayer 



Almighty God, 

We pray for the vision and awareness of thy 
presence and awareness of the presence that may 
break the chains of fear and misconception 
which confine our hearts. We know that we must 
accept that power which is greater than our- 
selves before we can conquer the things we fear. 
For there is a mightier force than fear — a 
mightier power than hate — a thing which is 
love, hope, understanding - - and is called the 
Will of God. 

Help us to open our hearts to thy command- 
ments - - and we shall acquire that freedom 
above all freedoms - - that peace beyond ex- 
pression . 

Let this lie our challenge: to conquer the 
tempests within our hearts; to vanquish the 
motives of wrong; to follow thy path of goodness 
and truth. 

Patricia Eveleth, 1953

Pages from the Diary 



"I arrived in Grand Central from Sain 
City, Iowa, and idled up to the informa- 
tion booth and asked Marti/ Schneider 
where to find a cab. I hailed a shiny, new 
orange one and a few minutes later walked 
into the Hotel Astor, where I found Elaine 
Audi and Dee Bethell standing at the desk 
trying to persuade the clerk, Tim Cogan, 
to buy Dee's latest novel. Curious, as I 
always am, I entered the ladies' room and 
found Nat Starr in a white uniform, pick- 
ing up bobby-pins. Getting back into the 
cab, I asked the driver to turn on the 
radio. The melodious voice of Janet Bow- 
den came over the air announcing Rafa's 
Mambo Band playing a special request 
for the two exotic dancers — Catalina 
Gomez and Ann Zuill. The program was 
interrupted to bring a flash from Boston 

- Dee Pettit had been banned — again - 
for her revealing dances at the Old How- 
ard. The flash was interrupted to an- 
nounce that Audie Taylor had just fin- 
ished cutting up her fiftieth cadaver and 
found that it had two hearts! The cab 
stopped for a red light and in a television 
store window, I saw a new, life-sized set 
tuned to the twenty-four-hour comedy 
show, "Life with Betty." The cab con- 
tinued uptown and, as we passed Carnegie 
Hall, I saw Andy Stevenson, violin in 
place, and Mary Owl, piano under her 
arm, come sedately out. A large poster 
was outside announcing Muffle Gross, the 
famous African explorer and heathen 
converter giving illustrated lectures on 
newly-discovered Umbagazuland. From 
February 17-24, the attraction seemed to 
be the Talbot Brothers, featuring Ellen 
Smith as guest trumpet soloist. The post- 
ers had been hand-painted by Meddle 
Goodnow, eccentric Bohemian artist who 



is, at present, starving in a garret in 
Greenwich Village. 

Red lights being rather numerous, I 
had one of My Boys hop out for a news- 
paper and a couple of magazines. He soon 
came back and I saw, screaming in the 
headlines, "WORLD-FAMOUS DOG- 
TOR, CORNELIA NYCE, INVENTS 
SUBSTITUTE FOR BLOOD!" Then 
my attention was drawn to an article on 
Helen Marvell, headmistress of Choate, 
who had just been presented with a 
Caddy-Allard by her appreciative pupils. 
Turning the page, I saw an announcement 
of the birth of Ann Kennedy's fifth child, 
whom she had named Em. By this time, 
we had gotten to Central Park. I saw 
some familiar figures, so I got out of the 
cab. There, sitting on an anthill, was Toni 
Gerald having a serious discussion with 
Timmie Hekma, who was most consider- 
ately feeding the birds. They were dis- 
cussing their old classmates and told me 
some very interesting bits of gossip. First 
of all, there was the time when Mary 
Williams was seen going north on a south- 
bound subway. I must say I was rather 
surprised to hear that Carol Hardin just 
defeated Polly Jackson to win the Wom- 
en's World Wrestling Championship. 
They also told me that Nancy Bailey is 
enjoying a very successful career as house- 
mother at Princeton. I was digesting this 
news when up popped Sally Swayne 
wheeling ten baby carriages filled with 
most of her children. She told us that she 
had almost been run over by Dottie Giles, 
who is at present chauffeur for the Secre- 
tary-General of the U.N. She had just 
been having tea with Dee Sclioon maker, 
Mrs. America 1J)68, and Helen Glidden, 
who was rather tired after having spent 



40 



of Sam Aritan 



FEBRUARY % 1968 



all morning modeling bathing suits at the 
Motor Boat Show. 

I hopped back into the cab and we 
headed for Radio City. Double attraction 
at the Music Hall — Maryse Besso as a 
swan in "Swan Lake" and Ruth Sidon 
and Mary Scandura, who have com- 
pletely displaced Dean Martin and Jerry 
Lewis. 

I passed the skating rink and there was 
Patty Earhart shoveling off the ice. I 
turned around and bumped smack into 
Bev Berkey, who said she was carrying on 
a thriving business as a street -corner 
photographer. She had just snapped 
Julie Gaines, better known as the presi- 
dent of the Lonely Hearts Club, with her 
old roommate, Muffie Grant, who has 
gained renown as a Whiffenpoofess. They 
told me that they had just seen Ann 
Clark coming out of Madame Patricia 
EveletK's School for Deportment, having 
just completed her two-hundred-nine- 
teenth successful improvement course. I 
got back in the cab and, as we went 
whizzing downtown, I picked up a maga- 
zine. The first thing I saw was an ad for 
Breck shampoo, posed for by Tish Miller, 
of all people. On the same page with this 
ad was an article by Judy Wilcox entitled, 
" How to Be One of the Ten Best -Dressed 
Women in the U. S." and one by Nancy 
Smedley explaining the reason for her new 
rocket service between Andover and 
Exeter. 

One of My Boys got hungry, so we 
stopped off for a minute at an Automat. 
Blocking the entrance was Judy Pinkham 
collecting money for the Salvation Army. 
We finally got inside, and there was Pam 
Bushnell waiting on tables. She was deep 



in conversation with Bunty Benedict who 
had spent the last nine months going 
around the world in a bottle. We were 
sitting munching on chicken sandwiches 
when in walked our friend Libby Hollister, 
chief lense cleaner on Mount Palomar, 
with Eva Stern, stock-car tester at the 
Indianapolis Speedway. Over in a corner 
we noticed Ann Stoddard keeping in 
training for her job as fat woman in the 
circus by consuming her fifth double 
banana split. On the way out we bumped 
into Barbara Schroedel, star of the current 
Broadway hit — "Let Your Hair Down. " 
Trying to get back into the cab, our way 
was blocked by Connie Weldon, head of 
Baby Sitters' Union, Local Number 17, 
standing on a soap box screaming for 
better wages. Once safely back in the cab, 
I was startled by hearing Marta Horsefield 
in a singing commercial for Grandma's 
Lye Soap. The program was a lecture on 
hair-styling by Carol Burton. We finally 
pulled up in front of Macy's. There, hold- 
ing a big basket, was Janie Wilson shout- 
ing for Bundles for Bermuda. Nancy 
Edmonds, just returned from installing 
sun-lamps in igloos in Alaska, was giving 
Janie the coat off her back. Looking into 
Macy's window, who should I see but Sue 
Martin testing mattresses. She looked 
extremely comfortable and, seeing as I 
had no place to spend the night, I decided 
to accept her hospitality. I went back to 
the cab to pay the fare and collect My 
Boys. The patient cab-driver turned 
around and took off her sunglasses and 
cap and, much to my amazement, I saw 
that it was Ollie who had so kindly taken 
me on my tour of New York. Well, 
Boys, it certainly is a small world!"

Preps 



Of course we're the youngest, bounciest 

class we're the Preps, - - the lowest of 
low called nieasley "Preps" by our 
upperclassinen, hut having fuu with the 
best supply of food, comics and our par- 
ents' deposit money. Our rooms, clothes 
and furniture have now known what it's 
like to belong to a Prep. With "more 
bounce to the ounce'' we happily make 
our way through Abbot, putting strain 
and stress on Abbey and the teachers. 

Here are some expressions that circu- 
late through the Pre]) class: 

"Tally-ho, slippers down the dust 
shoot. " 

"Throw these away? You're kidding - 
Fve only got five runs in them. " 

Blind dates: "If at first you don't suc- 
ceed, try. try again." 

"Do you know that her bed is sagging 
in the middle?" 

"Whoops, the handle came off the 
shower!" 

And now the most important corridor 
veil of all. "FOOD!"

Student 
Government 

This year the Student Council 
has tried to clarify in our indivi- 
dual thinking the various stand- 
ards of conduct constituting a 
responsible and well-rounded citi- 
zen and to stimulate similar think- 
ing in the entire student body. 

As a result of our interpretation 
of these standards of conduct 
based on the desired qualities of 
character, the Citation and Honor 
systems have been revised. 

It is our sincerest hope that the 
student body has profited from 
this new presentation of the Stu- 
dent Government.

'Who can separate his faith 
from his actions or his belief from 
his occupation?" 

The Prophet by Kahil Gibran 



Through this year's problems 
and pleasures we have sought to 
unite the faith of an ideal with the 
truth of reality — a goal unattain- 
able in a year. We would like 
therefore to leave, not an accom- 
plishment, but an idea kindled in 
each of us and awaiting only the 
sparks that will bring it to flame.

Courant 



The advertisement for Courant 
asked what it is - - ves, and what 
is it? This, our magazine, is a col- 
lection of the literary efforts of the 
school. "Our" magazine because 
as publication date draws near and 
tempers wear thin we begin to 
realize how much we have put into 
it, not only in written material but 
in interest and effort; and more 
important how much we have 
gotten out of the work. Yet it is 
your magazine because it is put 
together for you and with your 
help. This is essentially Courant. 

Our staff this year has been 
Helen Marvell, Connie Weldon, 
Dee Bethell, Elaine Audi, Meddie 
Goodnow, Dee Schoonmaker, Bee 
Gramkow, Pat Eveleth, Corny 
Nyce, Lucy Garretson, Nat Starr, 
and Audrey Synnott. 



The Circle 

'Yearbook 7th period" reads 
the sign every Friday on the black- 
board. During these meetings, 
brains were racked, and hair was 
torn; but under Mrs. Reeves' 
constant but patient guidance, all 
our problems were solved. Dee and 
Timmie aided by Meddie and 
Helen spent their time doodling 
while Bunty and Sue attempted to 
balance the budget. Throughout 
the year Bev and Granny furiously 
snapped pictures. Our millions of 
ideas were finallv sorted out and 
written up by Janey, Sally, Carol, 
Marty, Judy, and Janet; and from 
the chaos came Nancy's constant 
reminder; "The deadline's com-

The Abbot Athletic Association 
welcomes every new girl at the 
opening of the year. Every indi- 
vidual participates in some field of 
sport each season. The Athletic

and every girl in upholding the 
spirit of the school in regard to 
athletics. 

The council this year has been 
conducted by an able president, 
Carol Hardin. The other members 
consist of Audrey Tavlor, vice- 
president; Pam Bushnell, secre- 
tary; Ellen Smith, treasurer; the 
loyal team captains, Muffy Grant, 
Gargoyle; and Julie Gaines, Grif-

Abbot Athletics 



In order to become a member of 
a team this year, each girl was 
expected to write a song or cheer, 
later to be used by her team. The 
cheers were worked out with ori- 
ginal motions, led by the cheer- 
leaders and used by the teams on 
our spirited field days. Besides our 
regular sports there were innum- 
erable walks that could be taken 
at leisure, which, along with pos- 
ture awards, built up individual 
points towards class numerals, the 
Athletic "A", chevrons, and fin- 
allv the white blazer.

Listen you Gargoyles and von shall hear 
The historv of a fabulous year. 
In nineteen hundred and fifty-three

Our sportsmanship is nothing new. 
With Mufrie leading and Lister, too. 
We'll raise our rackets, sticks, and glove 
To show that there are none above 
The Gargoyles! Winter. Fall, and 

Spring. 
So praises to the Green we'll sing; 
And as we play on every field 
We'll he striving for the shield. 
So Griffins, guard your strong Marine, 
And watch out for our "Listerine."

Once there lived on Gnomeland 
a jolly soldier. A shock of black 
hair framed his tubby face. He 
wore a white shirt stamped, "Ma- 
rine Corps. " 

One day while bravely fighting a 
herd of giraffes, he fell — down, 
down through space. As he fell he 
became immortal, 
changed to cotton, 
rags, but his spirit, 
burst the strange cloth prison, and 
scattered Gnomedust around the 
world, enshrining a chosen few. 
And although some never knew 
'til years later — Gus had dubbed 
them Griffins. 



His heart 

his mind to 

like magic.

Sports at 



After our teams were chosen and 
the anticipated day of initiation 
had passed, we all joined together 
for a wonderful year of sports. Our 
hockey season proved to be ex- 
tremely exciting with the spirit 
high between the Gargoyles and 
Griffins. Each game was fought to 
the end by the players spurred on 
by their faithful teammates. Bas- 
ketball and tennis proved equally 
thrilling, and the season was cli- 
maxed by an energetic fall Field 
Day. 

Too soon winter came, forcing 
us inside for a different kind of 
exercise. Many of us made like

a Glance 



monkeys on the gym bars, while 
others tried to curb their waist- 
lines bv strenuous exercises with 
Miss Peddle. Unfortunately, ex- 
cept for a few snow flurries, our 
skiis remained in their racks all 
winter. 

With warm days, along came 
opportunities to run off our excess 
energy on the lacrosse fields, tennis 
courts, or baseball diamond. And 
then, all too soon, came final Field 
Day and the long-awaited chapel 
where we learned which team was 
victorious. As we now think back, 
this vear has been full of enthus- 
iasm and fun for each and everv 
one of us.

planning and painstaking editorial work by the CIRCLE 
Staff, makes this a book to be treasured.
